California Juvenile Justice PREA Reallocation Project

Award Information

Award #
Congressional District
Funding First Awarded

Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $73,984)

Congress passed the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) in 2003 with unanimous support from both parties. Congress intended that PREA would provide for the analysis of the incidence and effects of prison rape in Federal, State, and local institutions and to provide information, resources, recommendations, and funding to protect individuals from prison rape.

The Board of State and Community Corrections will pass through the 2015 PREA reallocation funding to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCCR), Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ). DJJ will use the reallocated funds to assist in off-setting the cost of the required unfunded training on the revised policy and procedure that is in the final stages of approval. The policy has been updated to comply with the National Standards to Prevent, Detect and Respond to Prison Rape, effective August 20, 2012. NCA/NCF
